JOHN ANDERSON , B.Sc.
Dr. Anderson, Lecturer in Bee-keeping at the Aberdeen College of Agriculture, is perhaps the most widely-known bee-keeper in Britain. He looks after the interests of apiarists in the eleven most northernly counties, but has lectured on his subject throughout the whole of Britain and in Paris. As editor of ' The
Scottish Bee-Keeper ' and contributor to many other bee journals at home and abroad, he has become known to a still larger number of .people interested in bees and honey. He is a well-known figure at the National Honey Show which is held annually in the Crystal Palace, London. At many apiaries in North Scotland and at the College apiaries at Craibstone, Aberdeen, Dr. Anderson's theories are put to the test. From fewer than thirty stocks of bees Craibstone apiary produces annually over a ton of honey, and this average of seventy-five pounds per hive is frequently exceeded by bee-keepers who follow the same methods. Dr. Anderson's ambition is to see British honey on every breakfast and tea-table all the year round.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
